Landlord Advice....
  • paragraph

    Tenancy Deposit Advice

    A deposit is collected from the tenant to safeguard against damage. At the end of the tenancy we will inspect the property and the costs of any work required will be deducted from the deposit.

    As a landlord, it's important that you ensure the tenants deposit is protected in a Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme within 30 days of receipt. The Housing Act 2004 came into effect on 6 April 2007, and made provision for the protection of tenancy deposits and the resolution of disputes over their return. All deposits taken for Assured Shorthold Tenancies after this date must be covered by a Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme. Any disputes will be referred to the dispute resolution service of the Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme.

    We are a SAFEagent.

    Belvoir is a founding member of the pioneering SAFEagent scheme (www.safeagents.co.uk). SAFE (Safe Agent Fully Endorsed) represents firms that protect landlords' and tenants' money through a Client Money Protection Schemes.

    Utility Bill Liabilities Advice

    Generally, it is the tenants' responsibility to make the payment of water rates, council tax, gas, electricity, telephone bills and the television licence. It might be a good idea to check that all the bills have switched into the tenants name as soon as your new tenants move in, otherwise you may receive some unexpected bills. At the end of the tenancy, the tenants are responsible for notifying the relevant service providers and local authority to ensure that the services are returned to the landlords' name.

    Gas Safety Regulation Advice

    As a landlord, you have legal responsibilities for the safety of your tenants. A landlord must ensure that the property's gas appliances and installations are properly maintained and are fully checked every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

    You must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to any new or existing tenant.

    Belvoir are able to organise gas safety checks on behalf of landlords using specialised engineers. As your agent, it is essential that we are in possession of a copy of the valid gas safety certificate before we can release keys to a tenant for move-in.Inventory Advice

    Each time the property is let, an inventory report is taken before the start of a tenancy. The report is a detailed check-in and check-out inventory which is designed to provide you with a comprehensive report of your property, its condition, and its contents. It will serve as evidence of the condition of the property before the tenants move in. This way it will help to protect you if there are any disputes at the end of the tenancy.

    Advice about the Landlord's Duty of Care

    All landlords have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their tenant. Looking after a rental property should be taken very seriously, and landlords who neglect to maintain properties adequately may find themselves in breach of section 11, of the Landlord and Tenant Act. Landlords must take reasonable provisions to avoid supplying an unsafe environment for tenants. In the event of an incident in a property, the landlord must be able to demonstrate that they have provided a duty of care to their tenants. Electrical items can only be shown to be safe, if tested professionally and regularly. Landlords must also show that appliances are safe and furniture adheres to fire safety regulations.

    It can be much more convenient for a landlord to have an agent to deal with maintenance issues. Under the terms of Belvoir's full management service we can act on the landlord's behalf and take swift action to resolve problems.

    Tax Advice

    Under Self-Assessment, landlords are legally required to keep and retain records, enabling a tax return to be completed or to make a claim for relief. This legal requirement came into force in April 1997 and a penalty of up to £3000 can be charged for each year of assessment where there has been a failure to maintain adequate records. Belvoir is able to provide landlords with details of income and expenditure. Records regarding rental properties must be retained until the fifth anniversary of 31st January, following the year of assessment (ie five years 10 months).

    Landlords should take independent financial advice from an accountant regarding this subject, as it can be complex and rules do change periodically. If you wish Belvoir to introduce you to a reputable accountant, please let us know.

    Some important points to consider include:

    • Landlords are now responsible for assessing their own tax.
    • Income tax is payable on letting income whether the landlord lives in the UK or abroad. Expenses are only allowed if incurred during the letting period, but there are provisions for claiming expenses on an un-let property.
    • For all lettings, the landlord can claim tax relief for maintenance, repairs, insurance, management fees, ground rent, and interest on a loan to purchase or improve the property. Mortgage interest can be used to offset against rental income to produce a greater tax saving.
    • Landlords with furnished lettings may claim tax relief for insurance, repair of contents for reasonable wear and tear - either on a replacement basis or as a concessionary 10% of rental income.
    • A landlord's income from rented properties - furnished, unfurnished and holiday letting - is now lumped together and assessed under Schedule A. This pooling is not permitted with overseas properties, which are taxed under Schedule D. A reputable accountant will be able to help with this.
    Property Management & Repairs Services

    It is the landlords' responsibility to ensure that the property is in good condition, with the exception of window glass or other breakages caused by the tenants.

    If you are looking for trusted contractors to carry out work on your property, each Belvoir office has a database of expert contractors that we can call on to deal promptly and effectively with any emergencies and repairs. Belvoir only uses reputable, professional tradesmen and because we deal with them day in and day out, and pay them promptly, we are able to acquire their services much quicker and at better rates than an independent landlord is likely to achieve. Depending on your agreement with our offices, once the cost for maintenance is approved by the landlord, we can commission the work to be carried out.

Tenants Guide to Renting a Property with Belvoir
  • paragraph

    Renting your home can be beneficial for many reasons. Renting can be cheaper than owning your home and bills can be more predictable too, which is great news for those who prefer stable finances. With fewer outgoings, you can save more money.

    Renting offers more flexibility - you can move somewhere new relatively quickly which is useful if you plan a new job or are going away to study in the near future. Also, it's less stress than being a homeowner as you won't need to pay for property maintenance - most of that will be done for you by your landlord.

    Whether you want to rent a house or flat, the rental process is the same. Rental properties usually become available about two months before the end of tenancy date, so where possible it is worthwhile to start looking early.

    This tenant guide will provide you with advice and information on how to secure a rental property, and help you understand tenancy agreements and inventories. At Belvoir we are devoted to helping you find your ideal home and we have your best interests in mind.

    Finding a rental property

    Firstly you should think about the kind of property you would like to rent. You need to know what your priorities are, as it can be difficult to find everything you want in one property. An important decision to make early on is if you want a furnished or unfurnished property. However, most unfurnished flats now come with modern appliances such as a fridge and washing machine, so its always a good tip to ask the landlord or agent exactly what's included.

    Tell your local Belvoir office exactly what type of property you are looking for, with lots of properties to choose from, we'll help you find your ideal home.

    Things to consider:
    • Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
    • Bath or Shower
    • Furnished/unfurnished
    • Storage space
    • Parking
    • Separate/open plan kitchen and dining room
    • Garden
    • Energy efficiency
    Budget

    To work out what rent you could afford monthly, total your monthly expenses (not including the rental estimate) and subtract this amount from your monthly income. The final figure is a rough guide of what figure is affordable for rent each month. Use this figure as an estimate when you're searching, if you tell your Belvoir office we can suggest suitable properties that meet your requirements.

    Finding the right location will have an impact on your lifestyle and the property you choose. Your local Belvoir office will be able to provide useful information about house prices, local schools, transport links and other local amenities. This will help you choose an area with confidence.

    Once you've found a rental property you like, book a viewing as early as possible. There is high demand for properties in the rental market and if you find a property you love, it's best to move fast to secure it. Contact your local Belvoir office and we can accommodate a viewing time to suit your schedule.

    A referencing check is just to make sure that you're a suitable tenant and are able to pay your rent. We will also check to make sure that you have rented a property without any major problems in the past and we will ask for an administration fee (Except in Scotland). Be aware that if you fail any of the necessary checks, you may not be considered for the property.

    Referencing criteria:
    • Three years' address history
    • Employment details
    • Confirmation of earnings
    • If self-employed evidence of the last three years' account details
    • Current landlord details
    • Your bank account details

    Only once you've paid the deposit is the property truly secured.

    The deposit is usually between one/two months' rent and it is held for the duration of the tenancy. This deposit is held as cover for any damages that may occur and need to be repaired at the end of your tenancy.

    Belvoir protect your deposit with a government-authorised Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme.

    We will organise for both you and the landlord to sign the tenancy agreement which sets out the terms of the tenancy. After which, you will be given the keys to your new property!

    Enjoy your new home from all at Belvoir!

Mike D

      Very prompt responses and no hitches in tenancies. Hard working team and if any key member is absent at any time for any reason another member of staff seems able to deal with the query. They make things happen in a professional and courteous manner. Friendly and approachable .Danny

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      "A great service , very efficient , fast and helpful. Carly French listened to our needs and found exactly what we needed in a very short time. The after service has also been very good and we will recommend belvoir lettings to all our friends." Dean, Grantham.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      "We moved to Grantham in 2014 and rented our first home through another local Agent. Typically we had issues that needed to be resolved by the Landlord; water leaks, faulty fittings etc. We notified the letting agent and, whilst they appeared to be responsive to our needs, the communication flow between us>them>landlord was terrible. We assumed this is normal when renting a property. We were mistaken! We subsequently moved and rented a new home through Belvoir. The application process was seamless and our Agent (Wendy) is always responsive to our needs. Wendy goes above and beyond our expectations in ensuring any questions/concerns (and gripes!) are actioned. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to rent a property in Grantham or the surrounding villages to use Belvoir." Mr A, Grantham
    • Tenant Testimonial

      "So far I have been very happy with Belvoir. They are friendly, listen and respond when things need doing. It's nice to walk in and they know who you are .One of the staff, Wendy, even insisted that I left my heavy shopping there and brought it up to me after work. That is above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you." Bernice, Grantham.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I needed a property to rent quickly and had to be able to take my pets. The whole team went out of their way to find me a home and made the whole renting process easy and the aftercare has also been great. Fiona Ross
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I have rented through various Gants in the past and although they have been professional and did their job there was no human element, I thought all agents were the same until I contacted belvoir in Grantham when they had a property I was interested and I could not believe the service I received. I had been through a very difficult time over a couple of years and my situation was not straightforward, Simone was the lovely young lady who took my call and was the most lovely and helpful person, I arranged the viewing and to visit them to discuss things and it was a very positive experience, I am disabled and sometimes takes me a long time to get to places and my journey from Nottingham was not the best with road works etc and I was very late and was becoming quite stressed, I rang Simone to inform her and she was so great and told me not to worry and just to get there when I could , Simone was so different, she was very professional as she should be and very knowledgeable about the letting process however she had that extra something that is lacking in so many people these days ...EXCELENT customer service and the vary rare HUMAN KINDNESS and actually listened to my situation and was commits to helping me rent the property I wanted. The whole team at Grantham were lovely and helpful but Simone went above and beyond to make my experience as trouble free as possible, she was so kind I was reduced to tears at one point, a very emotional time for me and she looks after me with a genuine caring attitude. I found the whole experience very positive even though the actual property was not the best when I first moved in and they do not deal with the properties once they are rented they still helped me as much as they could to liaise with the landlords. If I moved again It will be with belvoir I don't think I would go anywhere else and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a property in the area, however I would want to deal with Simone and if she ever moved to another agent I would have to follow her too as at the end of the day as wonderful and professional as belvoir were it was Simone who made the experience a positive one. The only downside was COFFEE...... NO COFFEE, LOL , come on girls offering potential clients when they come to make their applications a drink is a must in my book. Take that customer service one step further and add the human element and set yourself apart from the other faceless robotic other agents , moving house is very stressful, we need coffee , ðßÃËÃâ¬ðßÃËÃË Thank you belvoir for all your kindness and help and EXCELENT customer service And THANK YOU Simone for all of the above and that little bit more , you are a very lovely lady xxxx
